I am Jürgen Thiel and in more than thirty years I had the opportunity to gain professional experience in a wide variety of fields. After graduating in computer science I worked as a software developer in a start-up company as well as in a large German IT corporation. Then I quickly moved on to sales, initially more technical as a field application engineer at Intel Corporation. For the same company I then worked in various positions in the 1990s, building up the organization and our business in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa, before taking over as Regional Manager for these regions. After that I served several years as Managing Director of Intel’s German subsidiary in Munich and as a member of the EMEA Board of Directors, being responsible for our business and sales organization in Europe. During this time I also received the award “Career of the Year”.
In 2006 I decided to take a sabbatical and traveled to the northeast coast of Brazil. In the end, this sabbatical turned into ten year stay, during which I founded and managed two companies over there as an entrepreneur in the areas of business consulting and tourism.
After returning to Germany in December 2016, as Head of Global Sales & Business Development at Paessler AG, previously a client of my consulting business in Brazil, I have been able to contribute with my experience to build the company’s strategy, develop a global business and build a worldwide sales and support organization.
Since March 2021 I am working as a management consultant, interim manager and business coach. More information can be found on my company website.
